Pour a cup of boiling water over a teaspoon of dried linden tree blossoms, cover, steep for 15 minutes, strain, drink warm. You will sweat, and the fever will go down. My mother used to make me take this and sweat under a blanket, maybe sweating has something to do with overcoming illness too. I remember raspberry jam worked too. Just take couple teaspoons of raspberry jam, pour a cup of warm-to-hot water over it, mix, drink, lay down and wait for sweat to coe and a fever go down.
